Church offers extra resources during the coronavirus pandemic

16 March 2020


THE Church of England is gearing up its digital resources to cope with the coronavirus epidemic.

Plans are in hand to develop the A Church Near You website to show which churches are offering live streams of their services. (There is a livestream tag that churches can add to their posting.) And a blog has been posted with instructions about how to set up a live stream.

In addition, existing Church House Publishing output has daily audio content. This includes the #LiveLent: Care for God’s Creation campaign, with daily audio content available via the app and daily emails. The BBC’s Daily Service and Sunday Worship are currently using the themes from #LiveLent. Find out more here.

There is a daily prayer on the C of E website, with an audio version, available here. Smart speakers, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home can access C of E material. And the popular app Reflections for Daily Prayer continues to be on sale.

Video and audio material is planned for Holy Week and Easter. The digital team at Church House is also developing material that can be downloaded and printed, for distribution to people without internet access.


FREE DELIVERY: Church House Bookshop, part of the Hymns Ancient & Modern group alongside the Church Times, is supplying books to UK customers without a charge for postage and packing until further notice.
